|NASA CONNECT: Geometry of Exploration: Eyes Over Mars - NASA; Langley Research Center|
Students examine how the principles of geometry and linear and angular measurements are used to survey and map the Earth and other planets. A surveyor explains how locations like football or soccer fields and describes the tools and techniques used. Students also learn how NASA researchers use geometric shapes to navigate spacecraft to Mars and how satellites, like the Mars Global Surveyor, and the principles of geometry, are used to determine the elevation of land formations on Mars...

|NASA CONNECT - Geometry of exploration: Water below the surface of Mars? - NASA; Langley Research Center|
Students learn how geometry, geometric shapes, and navigation are used to explore Mars. They also learn how NASA researchers collect, analyze, and interpret the data collected from exploration to develop theories about the existence of water and life on Mars.
